Perfect day
Venue Service

By Aimee and Richard, on 03 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2018

We got married on the 12th July 2018 with the help of Tracy at Hintlesham Hall. We only booked it 6 months before the date due to family circumstances but it didn't matter that it was such a short period of time to sort things out. Tracy helped us with everything, nothing was rushed and we felt less stressed knowing that Tracy was there for us planning before and on the day. and the other staff were brilliant and helped some of our wedding guests with queries. On the day, the hall feels like your own stately home with wonderful views and amazing food.....the perfect place to get married.

Absolutely fantastic

Hintlesham Hall were just fantastic when we had our wedding there in 2018. Tracy and the team went above and beyond to make our day special and it really was the most brilliant day. The venue is stunning, the service is superb & the help they gave us both prior to and during the wedding was amazing. They really give your wedding the personal touch & nothing was ever too much trouble. We would highly recommend them to anyone, it is the most perfect place. Thank you to Hintlesham Hall and the team for being so wonderful.

I can’t rate Tracy and her team at Hintlesham Hall high enough for making our wedding extra special. The location is beautiful and the numerous rooms gave a lot of flexibility and different spaces for people to gather. The gardens were lovely during summer. The food served was excellent. Freshly prepared and of high quality. Tracy was super flexible and very professional in her dealings with us. She organised the day perfectly.

By Michelle and Steve, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 28 May 2018

We had the most perfect day. Everything went according to plan and the staff were amazing. We had a small intimate wedding and I can honestly say I wouldn't have changed a single thing. The food was super and the grounds were fabulous for the children to play in and for our guests to hang out on the terrace. We had ordered cheese and biscuits for later in the evening and when advised this was ready in the Garden Room, I asked if we could have them outside as we were all enjoying the summer evening. To my surprise and delight, they carried the entire table out and placed it on the lawn. The service was spectacular and the wedding organisers were fabulous. Nothing was left to chance. A truly memorable day that really couldn't have been any better than it was.

By Kelly Richards-Henry and Paul Henry, on 11 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 27 May 2018

Julie and the whole team at Hintlesham Hall made the whole process so easy and enjoyable for us, we will be forever grateful. Our wedding was all we hoped it would be and we have so many memories from what was a perfect day. Several of our guests have commented to us about how much they enjoyed the day and were blown away by the venue. Thank you to everyone at Hintlesham who worked so hard to make it all possible!

Such a perfect day!
Venue Service

By Annamarie and Charlie Hall, on 27 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018

What a truly special day we had. From the outset, all communication with Tracy and the team at Hintlesham during the planning process was professional and friendly, and they were so flexible to our needs. On the day itself, the team did a fantastic job of making the rooms ready for our ceremony, meal and reception – everything was done exactly the way we had envisaged. The food was amazing – delicious, beautifully presented and warm for each of our 85 guests – which is no mean feat at a wedding! The team were always on hand whenever you needed anything – whether it be a glass of water or a calming presence! The 32 bedrooms on offer for us and our guests were also gratefully received – being able to walk straight up to your bedroom from the dancefloor was a treat, particularly when they were so beautifully characterful! So many of our guests have commented on how wonderful the day was – and we could not agree with them more. We could go on singing Hintlesham’s praises, but think it best if you just go and see if for yourself – you will not be disappointed (particularly when you see their incredibly reasonable pricelist!). Thank you so much to Tracy and all the team for providing us with a perfect wedding day – one which will never, ever be forgotten.

By Luke & Matt, on 29 May 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

We chose Hintlesham Hall Hotel for our wedding venue based on a number of factors including the setting, the packages they could offer and most importantly its reputation for good quality food. We opted for the Exclusively Yours package. People say that organising a wedding is very stressful. We can honestly say that was not the case based on our experience. Having the ceremony, wedding breakfast and reception at one venue removes a lot of the logistics and planning, plus our guests could stay with us at the venue. It was great seeing everybody the following morning, even if a little worse for wear!! Tracy Carter at Hintlesham Hall has a wealth of experience, and it shows at every stage. Her knowledge and advice was spot on. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything went perfect and like clockwork. Tracy and her team no doubt were working hard in the background on the day, organising their own staff and working with third party’s (Iona Thomas - Harpist, Red & Black Casinos, The Party Starters - disco). All the staff were excellent throughout the day/evening. We wish that we could name them all and personally thank them. The feedback from all our guests is five star. We have not had any negative feedback, nor criticism. The wedding breakfast was excellent as was the evening buffer and canapés. If we could do it again we would. We would highly recommend - Luke & Matt

The perfect day
Venue Service

By Carol Garrett and Derek Jones, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2018

We were looking for a venue where we could get married, have a great meal, enjoy the company of our guests and stay overnight without any need to travel. Plus we needed somewhere that would cater for a small wedding (only 19 in total) but with all the quality and care that the day deserved. Hintlesham Hall surpassed our expectations. From our first contact with Julie and her team, we were provided with service and attention to detail that were faultless. On the day itself, we, and our guests, were made to feel that we were the only guests at the hotel and that nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and the service was discreet but impeccable. All the organisation for the ceremony itself, the wedding breakfast, our evening entertainment and supper took place without any prompting or need to enquire about what would happen next, where or when! The staff anticipated every possible need and just took care of it. Even the following morning we were delighted to find that breakfast was served in a room set out just for us and our guests - a surprising but wonderful touch. And all this for a very reasonable price. Hintlesham Hall made this a very personal and special day that we and our guests will remember very fondly for a long time to come. Thank you Julie and your team.

For this is the golden morning of love ...

My wonderful wife and I decided to get married at Hintlesham Hall after spending significant time researching the best venues for weddings in the UK. Hintlesham was referenced in The Telegraph's top 20 wedding venues (link below), and, as would become apparent, for good reason ! We opted for the intimate package, and payed for guests to stay over at Hintlesham Hall for 2 evenings. The preparations were all handled by Hintlesham's Julie and Tracy, who made planning the wedding a breeze. They also recommended great local connections for the cake, hair stylist, string quartet and florist, which removed any logistical challenges. The wedding day itself was everything we had hoped for and more - great venue with beautiful classic features and architecture throughout, michelin star quality food, lovely spacious rooms, a great ceremony and the bringing together of two special families. Thank you Hintelsham for making our day so special, and giving us a memory that will stay with us until our final days. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/united-kingdom/articles/the-best-hotels-for-wedding-venues-in-the-uk/

The perfect venue for our perfect day...

Hintlesham Hall is one those places you go to and instantly it feels right. My bride to be and I had been looking at venues all around Essex and Suffolk but when we walked into Hintlesham Hall we just felt like we had walked into a home. From day one Tracy and the team couldn't do enough for us and any problems became a non issue. Tracy ensured a stress free lead up to the day and her attention to detail and calm demeanour made everything seem so easy. When it came to the day many remarked on how the staff were attentive but invisible and we honestly couldn't have wished for a more perfect and smooth wedding day. We booked the whole venue for the day and i would thoroughly recommend booking an extra day there if you can. Everyone loved their rooms and the service and I didn't hear a single negative thing which is truly remarkable. We feel a part of new community and we can't wait to go back for a catch up over afternoon tea and go through the wedding album. If you are looking for a great venue with fantastic rooms, exceptional service and an excellent rate then you need look no further. Our personal thanks to Tracy and the fantastic team at Hintlesham Hall if we could do it all again we would :-)

We fell in love with Hintlesham Hall at our first visit; Julie (our wedding coordinator) was brilliant and sold the venue for what it is, a beautiful stunning location, fit for any wedding. Nothing was too much trouble and Julie was really great at tweaking parts of our plan as and when we needed to. On the day, all the staff were genuinely amazing, everything went to plan and was on time. We didn’t add chair covers or over dress the venue with flowers etc because we loved how it was ‘normally’, large mirrors, massive oil portraits on the walls, gold and red furnishings, why cover it all up! Beautiful! The food was amazing and everyone commented on how good the service was, waiting staff were very attentive without being invasive, wine flowed and no one was left with an empty glass. Even with 14 children ranging from 4 months up to 12 years, every one was accommodated for, even my 3 yr old deciding he wanted ice cream for dinner was no problem for them! I know you get what you pay for but nothing was too much trouble. We booked the whole venue so most of our guests could stay and share the whole experience, I would definitely recommend this if it’s within budget. To share breakfast with everyone was extra special particularly because we had people from far and wide. A truly amazing wedding made extra special because of a stunning location and because of the hard work by all the staff. Thank you Hintlesham Hall!

A day to remember....

We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Julie and the Hintlesham team who were extremely professional and provided excellent customer service. They all went above and beyond the call of duty and made sure our day went smoothly. We also had guests attending with severe allegies, which was accomodated without any issues.
